Safety and wellbeing at work and at home: You have the right to thrive

It may seem like a privilege to work in a safe environment and spend quality time with your family. But in the EU, these are rights for all workers.

From setting up a limit on weekly working hours at 48, to having enough time off in-between working days to rest and invest in your personal life, your wellbeing is a priority for the EU.

This also applies to ensuring compliance with minimum safety and health requirements for all sectors of activities, and protecting the right to speak up when something feels wrong.

The European Pillar of Social Rights and its Action Plan aim to facilitate pursuing a career and living a fulfilling life, so you do not have to choose between one or the other.
